The trick to re-creating this gingham pattern is to pull a potter's rib (into which teeth have been cut) through yellow glazes, first vertically and then horizontally. Working in small, squared-off sections makes it easier to cover an expansive surface, such as a wall.
Note: The size of the gingham checks depends on the width of the teeth that are cut into a potter's rib.
